To the beauty in blue in glover park CVS – m4w (nw dc)

Date: 2014-08-03

I would not normally do something like this, but I feel compelled to find you. I was walking with my dad and I was wearing a blue Michigan shirt. We passed each other in the stairs leading up to the roof parking. I wanted nothing more to say hello, and I’ve been thinking about it all day. If you see this, I’d love to meet you, have a chance to say hello and ask you your name.

If this sounds like you, here’s a link to the ad: Craigslist

“Moe” better news

From the January 2010 Glover Park Gazette:

A Department of Public Works graffiti-removal squad descended on the commercial strip in mid-November to clear away the large-scale scrawlings of some taggers who had hit the neighborhood one night in late October. The words “Moe,” “Nore,” “Ball$,” and “ATB” were scrubbed from the CVS at 2226 Wisconsin and the old Pizza Hut at 2338 Wisconsin, among other buildings.

The cleanup crew left behind many smaller, scattered tags inflicted by Moe and his pals that same, crazy night, but Petar Dimtchev, the Mayor’s liaison for community relations and services in Ward 3, said he would provide graffiti-removal kits to affected property owners.
Dimtchev invited citizens with graffiti or blight concerns to call the Ward 3 Help Desk at 202-671-2337 or to contact him at petar.dimtchev@dc.gov or Drew Del Junco, outreach and service specialist for Ward 3, at andrew.deljunco@dc.gov.
